Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps

Why Men Don't Listen

Author: Allan & Barbara Pease

Review by Roger Elliott

Why Men Don't Listen


This latest monster best-seller in the ‘men and women are different' vein is refreshingly different.

This book uses science to explode the politically correct idea that beyond the physical, men and women were exactly the same. This latest monster best-seller in the ‘men and women are different' vein is refreshingly different.

This book uses science to explode the politically correct idea that beyond the physical, men and women were exactly the same.

With reference to hormonal and brain differences, the authors show why men and women prefer different types of job and are better suited to certain types of activity. Despite a tendency to overstate the point at times, and a lack of detail in some research references, the book contains a plethora of useful and fascinating insights.

Differences in approaches to sex and relationships are discussed, as well as spatial awareness and co-ordination, child development and choice of occupations. And most importantly for today’s high relationship failure rate - differing communication styles are examined in depth.

Men in particular will benefit from understanding the female need for speech and conversation, whilst women may understand a little more about mens' insatiable appetite for problem-solving.

Whilst not agreeing with everything asserted by the authors, I refuse to throw the baby out with the bathwater on this one. Set your brain to ‘semi-sceptical' read and enjoy!
